A Borneo Trekking and Adventuring Holiday

If you’ve been dreaming of jetting off into an island paradise and escaping from your day-to-day routine for a while, a Borneo trekking holiday might just be what you need to add excitement to your life.

Borneo is a vast island in Southeast Asia, and is known for its gorgeous beaches and biodiverse rainforest. Within the rainforest, clouded leopards and orangutans roam freely, as well as the nearly-extinct pygmy elephant species.

Powdery white sands and brilliant turquoise shores are commonplace within the island, making it the ultimate place to relax in your own paradise.

Borneo is also the perfect place for adventurous types, with areas like the Sipadan Island which is famed for its impressive dive site. Mount Kinabalu is the island's highest peak, standing at 4,095m, with many visitors of the island attempting to conquer its peak.
